Hemorrhagic syndrome is one of the actual problems of pediatrics. The development of this problem is associated with severe complications, serious health problems in infant. We review the questions of etiology, pathogenesis, clinical syndromes, differential diagnosis and treatment of hemorrhagic syndromes in infants. The authors present quantitative and qualitative differences in the system of plasma hemostasis in newborns, infants and adult patients. This text presents the basic diagnostic algorithms based on the use as routine tests for the study of plasma hemostasis. We review the modern treatment of hemorrhagic conditions in children in first months of life at children with minimal manifestations of hemorrhagic syndrome, and children with liver disease, a syndrome of cholestasis, cystic fibrosis and chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Article is illustrated by three clinical observations.
